We are offering this selection of organized thoughts from some of Furman’s most illustrious professors of the humanities to divert, delight, and enlighten our community in small ways, or great ways, during this difficult summer.
Tolle, Lege (“Take, Read”): Augustine of Hippo writes, in his Confessions, that at a critical moment in his life, he heard a child’s voicing chanting the Latin phrase tolle, lege, “take; read.” Wandering over to his scroll of scripture, he picked a passage at random, read it, and found enlightenment.
Dr. Roger Sneed
